White Fillings and Pediatric Crowns
Various types of dental materials are available and offered by our office, including composite resins and glass ionomers. Sturdy and relatively easy to apply, these tooth-colored restorations are favored by most patients as they closely match the color of the existing teeth and create a protective seal.
Teeth demonstrating extensive dental fractures or larger areas of decay greatly benefit from crown placement. The crowns can be cemented over primary or permanent teeth. The ultimate purpose is to retain the teeth, encourage correct eruption of permanent teeth, and ensure proper speech and chewing regimens during the developmental age of a child. Dr. Jackson will assess your child’s specific need to restore his or her teeth back to health and beauty.
